Visionaries: Climate office data helps businesses make better decisions

Beth Hall is not just the Indiana State Climatologist. She’s also very funny. Hall shows the importance of professionalism in a setting but also knows how to have fun.

The first video on this page showcases the importance of Hall’s work with the Indiana State Climate Office and the Midwestern Regional Climate Center. The second video gives a glimpse of the laughs we shared during the interview process.

When we interviewed her, Hall knew exactly when to flip the switch to convey her message and goals through her answers. However, she had us laughing the entire time. Hall has the most contagious laugh. She keeps her audience engaged and wanting to hear more.

I learned an important life lesson from her: Work does not always have to be boring. The thing I fear most when going into the workplace is that professionalism takes over and leaves no room for fun. My experience with Hall made me excited for my future, as it eased my worries by showing me work can be enjoyable. Beside her humor, Hall is very well-spoken and generous. She is in the perfect field to work with people because of her welcoming smile and personality.
